Christine Moran is an astrophysicist who has a Theoretical Physics Ph.D., Master's; Physics/Computer Science and dual B.S. She solves scientific and societal problems with an interdisciplinary approach and is currently a telescope operator in Antarctica. She is also a Caltech Postdoc on sabbatical, and aspiring Astronaut. This was one of the best conversations I have ever had, forgive the audio, she is literally at the South Pole! In this podcast we discuss the reality of matter, how spacetime works, the origin of the universe, how religion fits in and her efforts to become an astronaut. Please take the time to listen to this fascinating conversation!
